Hi everyone, introducing my new WIP United We Stand.
It’s an occasionally open-world political adventure set in a fictional European nation in the 1930s against the backdrop of the great depression and the rise of fascism.
There hasn’t really been a proper political CS game yet and that is a niche i’ve been aspiring to fill for a long time. It’s been too long since i published anything and I’m really hoping to get this WIP going this summer. (Update, June 2017, really want to get it finished late this summer! Optimistic but that’s the aspiration)
Through the link you will find what I have written so far, 3 chapters for each of the 2 branches of the story. Your first choice will be to decided whether you are a member of the fascist or socialist party. Then there is a rather linear opening chapter which establishes the setting before the switch in chapters 2 & 3 to a more open world format where you get to explore the city and carry out a wide variety of tasks for your party.
The game will follow your character’s career and party’s fortunes over several years with the goal being to get in to power and stay there. Set in the brutal world of 1930s european politics, expect bitter arguments to spill over into street violence, poverty and unemployment to dog the nation and the spectre of international fascism to hang heavy over the story. This project is not a sequel or plot-wise at all related to my previous hosted game, divided we fall, but I suppose you could term it a spiritual successor.
I appreciate the thread has got pretty long now (590 posts at time of edit), so a couple of links to posts you might be interested in:
